Don’t Make Me Think: Introduction

This talk was given at the Digital Frontiers 2014 conference in Denton, Texas.

Since I graduated library school, no matter where I was or what I was doing I have felt like an outsider. Women were outsiders in library technology a decade ago, though matters are ameliorating somewhat. Institutional-repository managers have always been outsiders in academic librarianship. Now, of course, I’m teaching in a graduate department without holding a Ph.D.

I don’t like the demarcation game. That comes through perhaps louder than I meant it to in this talk.
